The Nicholas Schneider Photograph Collection consists of images assembled by Schneider during his student years at Oregon Agricultural College (OAC) prior to World War I. The images are primarily of fellow students and student activities. The items appear to have been removed from a scrapbook and are numbered P148:01 thru P148:09. The collection includes duplicate modern prints (probably made in the 1960s or 1970s) of two of the images.
The prints include images of the canoe house and a canoe on Fischer's Mill Race and the annual tug-of war between the freshman and sophomore classes at Fischer's Mill Race in 1915. One of the tug-of-war images is available online. Prints of the Class of 1918 sophomore class football team and cadets drilling on campus are part of the collection. An image of 3 students (Schneider, Greenlee, and Crane) standing next to a snow bank on Marys Peak in 1914 and a snapshot of several students standing on Monroe Street in 1912 are included. The collection also includes a photograph of Jim Arbuthnot, an OAC physical education instructor, and Schneider changing a tire on Arbuthnot's car (a Maxwell).
